  • We are excited to announce that we'll be using a new electronic system for Ticket to Play athletic clearances for the new school year with an expected roll out by the end of May.  Due to school closures, we will be extending the Ticket to Play deadline to mid-late summer.  Please check back for more specific details coming soon.   
  • Sports physicals will still be a required component of the Ticket to Play for all 2020-21 student-athletes; these will not be waived for any athlete under any circumstance.  With our May onsite Physicals Night being cancelled and the difficulty we know families may face in scheduling appointments to get these done, MCHS and PUSD are committed to providing a future onsite opportunity for our fall athletes to obtain a sports physical prior to the start of the season.  Please check back for more information in the coming weeks.
  • Letters will be given out to our Varsity athletes for spring season but will not be available to pick up until campus reopens.  Please check back for updates.
  • Cheer tryouts are postponed until further notice.
  • Applications for the annual MCAF scholarships were emailed on April 20 to the parents/guardians of student-athletes who meet the scholarship eligibility requirements.  If you did not receive this email and feel that you meet the following list of requirements, please email Emily Comstock at to receive an application.  To apply, a student-athlete must be a current Senior, hold a cumulative 3.75+ GPA (as of end of Tri 2), and have lettered in the same sport TWO or more years.  (Student-athletes on Varsity Spring rosters this year will receive Varsity letters.)  Applications are due no later than Wednesday, May 20; submission instructions are included on the application.
